PGs could leap up simply due to NBA Live Coins


    PGs could leap up simply due to the positional shortage, but that's a NBA Live Coins pretty bleak outlook.Free agency isn't much better. Mike Conley is the only top-tier point guard available, and his interest seems rather focused if he even leaves Memphis. We'll release updated free agent rankings early next week. In them, the top five point guards will be Conley, Shaun Livingston, Jeremy

It gets bleak fast. Brandon Jennings and Deron Williams are the next guys up. I covered this when the first edition of the free agent rankings were released back in the winter.                     


    So there is exactly one plug-and-play point guard in the draft and only a few starting-level PGs in free agency. Meanwhile, the position has become increasingly important due to the increased reliance on three-point shooting and the many elite athletes at the position across the league. Lacking a good center is a problem, but less of a problem than in the '90s. Lacking a good point guard is a crisis.


    That's why Utah -- who has Dante Exum, a promising teenager coming off an injury -- needed to land someone like Hill, even if it cost them a chance at drafting someone like Baldwin (or Skal Labissiere, Henry Ellenson or Cheap NBA 2K18 MT Tim Luwawu). Hill is a smart floor leader and top defender. That will be mighty useful against point guards like Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and Damian Lillard. Teague is traditionally more of a scorer, something of
